<![CDATA[Celebrate Brooklyn!: The Tiger Lillies: The Rime of the Ancient Mariner / Cynthia Hopkins]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/18/the-tiger-lillies-the-rime-of-the-ancient-mariner-cynthia-hopkins http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/18/the-tiger-lillies-the-rime-of-the-ancient-mariner-cynthia-hopkins Date: July 18, 2013

The Tiger Lillies, whose wicked cabaret has been likened to “Kurt Weill as scripted by Aleister Crowley,” (The Guardian) present a musical conjuring of Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s seminal romantic poem of death and enchantment on the high seas, complete with a cleverly projected stage set. The maverick theater artist and musician Cynthia Hopkins will establish the mood of briny macabre with an opening set of sea-faring songs and ghost stories.

<![CDATA[Summer Movie Series: Jumanji]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/18/jumanji http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/18/jumanji Date: July 18, 2013

Watch a movie in the great outdoors. Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free. Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

Jumanji is a visually elaborate fantasy about an enchanted board game that opens a magical portal to a jungle universe. Two young children, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), discover the game in an abandoned home and suddenly are greeted by Alan (Robin Williams), an adult who has spent his life trapped inside the game since playing it at age 12. Alan's only hope for freedom involves finishing the game, but this proves rather dangerous, as Judy, Peter, and Alan find themselves running for their lives from huge rhinoceroses, evil monkeys, vicious lions, and other terrifying jungle beasts. Director Joe Johnston, whose special-effects background previously came to good use in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, used groundbreaking computer imagery to simulate the thrills.
